When we bought the house Mike and I agreed that although the house had a great layout it needed some updating. The two main spots on our list were the kitchen and the master bathroom – both expensive remodels. The month we moved in we painted the entire interior, re-floored the downstairs, installed new baseboards and door trim and we remodeled the kitchen. If you’ve followed along for awhile you know we had just finished a pool on our last house right before moving. Suffice it to say that project Mike was exhausted. Me, the ADD Remodelaholic was happy to just keep on demoing but our pocketbooks also needed a break. So, for a year Mike and I saved and planned for our master bath remodel while I tackled smaller projects around the house. I’m glad we waited because I was able to really focus on choosing finishes that I absolutely love…it almost makes me wish I’d waited to do the kitchen. almost.
Here’s the plan: Enlarge the shower, shrink my vanity, add a linen cabinet, swap out our roman tub for an under-mount rectangle tub.
Here’s all the before pictures:
In the first week Mike worked on demo and building the shower walls, some plumbing, and some rough electrical while I worked on building the vanities I had drawn plans for:
At the end of week one Mike and I boarded a plane and headed to Colorado to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary. Such a great way to start our vacation. We had gotten a solid chunk in to our bathroom remodel.
